    I'm a Topman fan (mainly due to the fact that they make shirts that fit short people like me perfect). The thing is, a lot of other people buy Topman shirts and I tend to bump into people wearing same shirts pretty damn often.

    What do you guys do to avoid this? Go for basic shirts? Go for other brands? Thrift?

    Once I dressed up as Don Johnson for an 80s party and there were a dozen other guys in the same outfit.

    Doesn't happen b/c I wear baller clothes.

    Either that or I say nice shirt so I'm really complimenting myself.

    I ran into someone who had the exact same corduroy sport coat as me... it created a fun little discussion! [​IMG]

    I once bought a corduroy coat from H&M here in Berlin. I brought it with me on a trip to London thinking they'll probably have a different inventory ha-ha and the first tube ride resulted in a trauma--- there were THREE of us in the same car wearing the same jacket, in the same colour. There was nothing left to do but shrug it off. Anything else would've been desperate. I mean, what do you expect for 39 euros?

    It rarely happens, but when it does I take solace in the fact that I'm wearing it better than that other schmuck, which makes him the loser, not me. [​IMG]

    I once dressed up as Fred Flintstone for a Halloween party and there was another FF there. My outfit was better, though.

    That's why for halloween costumes, i try to make it original, or an idea that's hard to pull off so no one else will be doing it. No one else was dressed as a legend of the hidden temple character except for my friend who was on the same team obviously. Team shirt, gold helmet, knee/elbow pads and all.


    I've never ran into someone with the exact same thing, but similar things to where it's relatively noticeable. Sometimes off in color, but similar clothes like dark jeans, white tshirt and hoodie. Also, people wearing western plaid shirts.

    Someone was wearing the exact same threadless shirt as me at a gig, I kept my hoodie zipped up the entire time.

    Happened a couple times, which I get annoyed by. Saw someone wearing the same Kermit Dunks as me on campus. Also a few times wearing the ash/aqua dunks. A couple of times wearing the same hooded jacket from H&M, but mine is black and his was green.

    Chances of it happening in Vancouver are exactly 0... so no.

    For that matter, apart from my Diors and W+H (which I'll be selling soon) I buy stuff that most people here and on SuFu don't buy.

    I bought an American Eagle shirt a couple of months ago (it fit nice so I bought it). I wear it a couple weeks later. A guy in my 830am class has on the same shirt. Small class and really noticable that we have the same shirt on.

    Last class of the day 230. Same guy same shirt. My presentation starts a debate/argument. The prof silences everyone and im getting ready to continue. Out of no where this guy yells out, super pissed off, 'Nice shirt.' And everyone spent a few minutes laughing at our expense.

    As if we didn't already look stupid enough.

    The shirt is no in the garbage and I will never buy from American Eagle again. As it proves every douchebag on campus will have the exact same thing.

    I know a kid who has a couple of the same shoes/shirts that I have, I try not to wear them if I know he'll be around.

    It has happened a few times and I don't really care. I usually say something like, "hey, nice jeans", or "hey, nice shirt", etc. It gets a laugh out of everyone involved and we go on with our days.

    I went to H&M today and happened to be wearing (somewhat distinct) shorts that I purchased there on an earlier trip.

    As I was checking out, the guy next to me was wearing the same exact shorts!

    At first I was like OMG! Then I was like WTF!?! Then I was like LOL! Then I was all like SMD!

    I've come to the shop (CONTEXT) on several occasions to find Sam wearing the same jeans & Tee combo. I keep a small closet in our studio for this reason.
